πŸŽ‰5 Friday Faves πŸŽ‰

Hello! Long time no see, I had to take a short hiatus from blogging as we were so overwhelmed with school and life. My husband and I celebrated 16 years together! I am so thankful I get to be the wife of this kind, wise, strong, diligent, loving, compassionate, and brilliant man. He is the love of my life and still makes my heart sing.

We also went to the S. TX Coast which is one of my absolute FAVORITE places in the world. Sometime familiarity trumps the white sands and clear waters I see in pictures. We visit a small little island that has the best food, friendliest people and coziest beach. I'm looking forward to our Hawaii trip but here is just something I cannot  explain about the love for the S. Texas coast.

I do have my 5 Friday Favorites for you. I hope you enjoy!

1.If you want some beautiful, soothing worship music, I have fallen in love with this Lullaby Album once again. We listened to this when my first two kids were babies so we have so many fond memories evoked when we are listening to it now. 

Here is one of my fav songs from the album:

This song is based on Zephaniah 3:17 - "The LORD your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing."

 2. LOVEEE this gorgeous skirt frim SheIn. It is much longer on me than the pic. The embroidery is so gorgeous in person. the colors are so vibrant. This is cute paired with a white tank for summer and would be beautiful w boots in the late fall. 

3.This highlighter is an unbeatable price for the quality. No glitter but a beautiful shimmer. I like to put it in the corners or my eyes and a dab on top of my eyelids. 

4. I am SO EXCITED to have found an affordable yet high quality silver shampoo. I have a hard time keeping my highlights from turning brassy. This really tones down the yellow and keeps my highlights true to their ash blonde color. 

5.I have a post coming on how I was able to finally COMPLETLEY BAN BELLY BLOAT! One of the tricks I use is to make sure I get plenty of iodine. Liquid chlorophyll has been favorite of mine for quite some time but I am taking it religiously now that I know the iodine in it helps to balance thyroid levels and keep belly bloat at bay. I have a few other things I'm doing on a daily basis that been so helpful. Buried Treasure is a trusted brand of our family and we use the Buried Treasure ACF Fast Relief Rapid Immune Recovery with 1,000 mg Vitamin C, Elderberry, Echinacea when we need quick relief from a cold like the time we lived in the camper and everyone got the flu except my husband. He drank this on a daily basis and was able to steer clear of our flu virus. So I trust Buried Treasure's Liquid Chlorophyll and it's quite tasty to add to a tall glass of cold water.

That's it for today! Thank you for joining me.
Grace & peace,
Adoring Family
